I need to use the file 'words', but I can't find it.

This shows a red file called 'words', which I think is a broken link:

ls /usr/share/dict

What can I do?

apt-file says it's provided by wamerican: /usr/share/dict/words. I would:

apt-get install --reinstall wamerican

Seems like 'words' is for every word. If you need a specific language you can install for eg: wspanish, and use dict/spanish –  HappyDeveloper Jun 10 '12 at 20:44
